Hmm, I have several complicated legal documents to draft today.  Surely I could have someone overseas do it for me?

Valentine was hired to investigate when the company, a Verizon client, saw that someone from Shenyang, China, was logging in to its computer network during every workday. The breach was traced to Bob’s VPN network, but he had to be innocent, the victim of some kind of breach, the company figured. He was a quiet family man, “someone you wouldn’t look at twice in an elevator,” Valentine writes. And Bob was sitting there, working at his desk, every day. But when Valentine’s staff looked more closely at Bob’s computer, they ultimately found the smoking gun.

Bob had PDFs of hundreds of invoices from a third-party contractor in Shenyang for developer services. Bob had been paying the contractor $50,000 a year, while he himself made hundreds of thousands of dollars.

While the developer was working 9-to-5, Bob surfed the Web. At 9, he’d roll in and surf Reddit, watching cat videos. At 11:30 he’d grab some lunch. After lunch it was time for EBay for about an hour, when Bob migrated to Facebook. At 4:30, he’d email management, telling them what he had “done” during the day, and at 5, he’d go home.

Go here to the LA Times to read the rest. Cat videos and e-bay?  Sheesh, if you are going to steal time from an employer, at least put the time to good use!

  1. My wife, who works very hard as a housewife, is wondering how she can take advantage of an outsourcing opportunity as well… Perhaps we can ship the dishes to China, have them washed, and sent back. We’ll need extra dishes to account for shipping time. And then there’s the laundry. Is a Chinese laundry too cliche?
